Clean EUkip up NOW make UKIP electable!
Just imagine the disaster if UKIP had ANY authority!
talk about unfit for purpose – can you imagine a party that is so unprofessional that it supplies lists of its distribution membership freely, as shown by their crassly amateur, so called, party secretary!
Let us not forget UKIP has a track record of complete irresponsibility in data protection even being censured by The Data protection Commission through the courts!
It was after all UKIP that indulged in Cyber Bullying by posting a candidates confidential video on YouTube.
You will remember the lies and dishonesty and attempted cyber bullying to suppress the truth and intimidate by its press office, NEC members and even the lies of MEPs desperate to suppress the truth! NEC members such as Douglas Denny, Mick McGough or MEPs like Stuart Agnew, Graham Booth, Derek Clark, David Bannerman, Marta Andreasen etc.
Now we see once more the efforts of its leadership to once again force through changes to its constitution, crassly ill presented amateurishly ill written and once more trying desperately to eradicate democracy and concentrate POWER in the hands of one man.
Let us not forget that these efforts have already been voted down previously but be minded UKIP is very much an integral part of The EU scam and like The EU makes its subjects vote and vote and vote again to get the result they ‘demand’!
You will also note for just how long some of its more senior members like Michael Harvey, David Nixon and the like have been trying to persuade the party to act ethically but with little result – you will remember David Nixon resigned almost a year ago but did not carry it through until now – so out of their tiny group of elected Councillors yet another has quit UKIP in disgust at their dishonesty and lack of democracy.
We all KNOW Steven Woolfe was parachuted in as lead candidate as a drinking buddy of Farage’s – The number one list candidate in London was elected by the members yet he has been bumped down to suit Farage!
The elected list, I am reliably informed by several individuals, was:
1st David Coburn
2nd Lawrence Webb
3rd Paul Oakley
4th Steven Woolfe
5th Helen Dixon
6th Elizabeth Jones
Is this what UKIP wishes for our country, rigged elections and selection processes overriding the democratic rights of the voters?
I have been promised a number of letters including resignation letters which I will publish if they take the factual position forward constructively towards a Clean-Up of UKIP to TRY to make it fit for purpose rather than an aid to The EU!
Just consider where the corruption of elections has led UKIP – it was Farage’s CHOICES like David Bannerman, Stuart Agnew (Thick as pig sh*t but loaded – to quote Farage), Ashley Moat parachuted in to raise Farage’s credibility, the liar and fraud Marta Andreasen, Paul Nuttall forcing out Gregg Beaman etc. etc. The list is as long as UKIP’s history and just as corrupt!
You will also remember the esteem in which UKIP leadership hold their councillors from the belated and most perfunctory note of the untimely death of one of their few decent achievers Steve Povey and do note the fact that apart from a rather limp electoral circular they put no effort into retaining any of his seats despite having a willing candidate with public sympathy on his side as his son – UKIP lost EACH seat!
Labour ex-minister and former Staffordshire Moorlands MP Charlotte Atkins won a district council seat from Ukip at Leek North on aswitch of more than 19% since last May.Tory Neal Podmore gained Staffordshire’s Leek South division.These two seats became vacant after the death of a Ukip councillor who represented both of them.
Analysis of six comparable results suggest a projected 2% nationwide Labour lead over Conservative, the same margin calculated in aBBC survey of last May’s council polls.

Thanks for this David,The PEPP ballot was conducted after proper debate and the real UKIP Party voted against it quite rightly. I did say before the PEPP debate that we should see the new Constitution before we voted on the PEPP Issue.We are now in a situation where 90% of our members will not understand what it is all about when they vote.

Dear Fellow UKIP membersThank you so much for writing in with your observations on the constitution.I respectfully disagree with your proposition and urge you to vote “YES” to this new document which is so important for the future of the Party.The proposition made is inaccurate as the new Constitution will NOT change candidate selection procedures. The candidate selection procedures will be the same whether or not the Constitution is passed.The relevant Rules permitting a Constituency Association to select from the Approved List are now within the Party’s Rules of Procedure, which states:B.5.1 It is the responsibility of branches to seek to nominate candidates for parliamentary and local elections within the branch area, acting in accordance with the rules laid down in Sections R,S,T,U and V of the Rules of Procedure.S.15 Only applicants on the national approved list may apply to a branch or Constituency Association for an adoption/hustings meeting.S.16 Adoption/hustings meetings shall be advertised so that all candidates on the Approved List have the right to apply for selection in any constituency.S.17 Constituency Associations or branches which fail to select candidates within the timescale in the PPC Selection Procedure may forfeit the right to select their candidates, with the responsibility being undertaken by the region.S.18 Where there is more than one applicant in a given constituency, an open hustings meeting must be held in accordance with the PPC Selection Procedure.S.19 In this event, the choice of candidate shall be made through a ballot in accordance with the PPC Selection Procedure.I suggest that these provisions make clear that the effect suggested is not in fact the reality.Yours sincerelyMichael GreavesParty Secretary
One must appreciate the irrefutable fact that UKIP leadership are ONLY interested in themselves and self enrichment using sock puppets as liars, cheats and cyber bullies as the only way they can retain office as clearly they do not do so on democratic principles or British values being in association with racists, anti Jewish, anti homosexual, Zionist scum of EU politics who advocate violence and murder as policy, gave words of succour to Anders Brevick subsequent to his vile xenophobic murder spree and as The EFD Group advocate EU membership and revision of the scam to suit their personal needs and greeds.
By way of support of the facts led in the article above I add:
4.3.d does this apply to Lord Pearson?
4.9 Yet another paragraph giving undefined power to the NEC.
12.1.1 gives the NEC unlimited and undefined power concerning selection.
12.1.2 a clumsy way of preventing another Ashley Mote incident.
220.127.116.11 gives power to the NEC and away from the local constituency in
the selection of candidates.

Subject: New Constitution
You have probably received the latest “Independence” magazine with the new Constitution inside with your ballot papers to vote “yes” or “no”. I have had a long chat to some people within UKIP and I have been persuaded to vote NO and I am urging you to do the same.
I have been alerted that there are clauses in the new constitution which make it easier for UKIP to join a Pan-European party and therefore be given a great deal of “our” money to help the EU cause.
Also the membership vote for the Assembly List was re-jigged so the first 2 voted to the top of the list were put further down. I am not happy about this because this is not acceptable in a party purporting to be democratic.
I do hope you will agree with this and vote NO to the new constitution.
Kind regardsVanessa Crichton
Vanessa Crichton was the UKIP PPC for Hammersmith. It’s a constituency where Vanessa is also the Chairman of UKIP West London. it is claimed: Vanessa Crichton has built up West London UKIP despite the obstacles the likes of Wiffen have put in her place.

Such a pity UKIP has absolutely no idea of ethics, integrity or professionalism! As it keeps making abundantly clear.
Noting these facts and no doubt the utterly unprofessional total disregard of Farage’s placeman Michael Greaves in his desperate attempt to rebutt critics of the latest rewrite of UKIP Constitution in yet another attempt to legitimise what UKIP leadership already does when it rigs and fixes Party elections to suit themselves regardless of the wishes – even the votes of members!
Dear Party Secretary,
Thank you for your response. It would have been nice if the ‘Rules’ to which you refer had also been circulated to members.
However, as you know perfectly well mere ‘Rules of Procedure’ will always be inferior to the principal Constitutional document. If there is any conflict between the two, the Constitution will always prevail, as it so often does in the USA – where the Constitutional issue is always fought out in the final Court of Appeal.
Para B.5.1. of your Rules of Procedure allows branches to ‘nominate‘ candidates but not to decide. I believe that Regional Committees and Branches should have the ‘right to decide‘. Mere nomination to the NEC is a worthless prerogative for Regional and Branch committees because this Constitution transfers real powers of selection to the NEC.
I do not argue with your Paras S.15 to S.19 – but they make no difference to the central objection that the new Constitution cements the right of the NEC to determine who will be selected to represent UKIP in every region for Euro elections, and every constituency for Parliamentary and Local elections.
I regret to say that your response emphatically underlines my fears that UKIP Regional committees and Branch committees are no longer to be trusted to undertake the important role of selecting suitable candidates to represent the local community. Without trust you cannot expect the wholehearted support of grass root members to get behind their candidate. Without strong commited support at local level a candidate’s chance of election is dramatically impaired.
